These are random musings of my life journey, the people, animals, places, and events which have woven, and continue to weave, a tapestry that is me. We all know there is no real destination, only the ongoing experiences which blend together, creating the trail. Each step gives a glimpse of what is to come, without allowing me to see the end result. It is exciting. I have a home base that is mine, that gives me a place to rest. This is it. This is where my heart is, no matter where I journey...................

Guess What's Coming For Dinner
I just finished dinner, and I'm rhapsodizing about it. It isn't a big secret family menu or anything like that. Just a throw-together that really worked.
There is a grocery that I love. It is HyVee. Now, if you live outside the upper Midwest, you would only know about it from visits in our area. Let me tell you . . . I will miss HyVee when I go to NM. HyVee and Quick Trip (QT convenience stores). They don't have either in NM. I guess I'll have to settle for sunshine almost every day to keep me going.
Anyway, I did a little shopping earlier today. I came home with some tilapia filets coated with coconut, mango and papaya. It is a light coating, not overbearing, but a nice combination. While it was baking, I made saffron rice. On one side of the plate I put sliced avocado and on another, sliced kiwi. To the side was a little bowl with a handful of Bing and Queen Anne cherries. This was accompanied by a Little Penguin White Shiraz. Perfecto!!
Oh, my how good this meal was. I’ve been a little bored with meals recently, and this was . . . well, I just wish I could say “yum” in several exotic languages, because it was just that. I'm so contented. I'll bet I sleep well tonight!!
Happy tomorrow, everyone!
